URE STARTS NEW INQUIRY
Demandi InTestieation of Chaw of Im
morality at the Court House.
WANTS OPEN SESSION FOR THIS
(barer and outer ( kurgra Made
that Women Are Takea Into
the Hnlldiatf at
A brand new investigation whs started b
the county commie sinners at t lie meeting
Monday mnrnlriR. It Win In Run at the
auKRentlon of Mr. Vre and will be Uiken up
at a spoclal si-sslon Tuesday morning nt
10 o'clock. Reports have been circulated
Hint women have been taken to the build
ins at nilit. The first rumors stirred up
chnrires and couiiter-chnrges among the
Janitors and these will be inquired into by
Mr. I re said he hud heard these report
frequently and Intimated the matter had
been hushed up in order to protect the po
litical friends of certain persons he did
not name, lie thought In Justice to every
body concerned a full nnd open Investiga
tion should lie bad.
Mr. Solomon, chairman of the committee
011 court house and Jail, ."aid be heartily
agreed that nn Investigation should be
madn and said he had asked that the board
go into an executive session to consider the
ense, but one member refused to go Into a
closed scsfIoii. e
I was the. one who refused to go into
executive session." snid Mr. I're. "Execu
tlve sessions .are intended to cover things
up and protect guilty pnrtl-s. This thing
has got to be Investigated in the open."
Mr. Tralnor nald he did not think the
liourd should uct in public until It found
. out to a certiinty who the guilty parties
were. Mr. I're and Mr. Solomun were get
ting into a controversy over the powers of
tho latter ns chairman of the court house
and jail committee, when Chairman Pruning
stopped the discussion by . announcing he
would call a meeting at lu o'clock Tucsduy
morning to consider the case.
Auditor Asks More Help.
The finance committee reported It would
bo impossible for the auditor's force to
make a thorough Investigation of tho ac
counts in tho sheriff's una district clerk's
offices and asked that Walter Wills and
James Ruan be appointed to do the work
at salaries of t"j a month. The board
Tho controversy between the county and
'the cities of Omaha and South Omaha
regarding pay foe the boarding of prison
ers will be left to the committee on court
house and Jail to settle. The committee
was authorized to meet with committees
from the councils of the two cities and
came to a basis of settlement.' The county
has boarded a number of prisoners sent up
under the ordinances and has demanded
that It bo reimbursed by the cities. Tho
cities reply that they board a large num
ber of prisoners charged with offenses
under the statutes and these ought to off
set the county's bills. A suit was started
some time ago against the city of South
Omaha, but has not been pushed because
of the difficulty of 4hecklng up the records
to find out Just how mucin the county Is
entitled to. All those concerned appear
to dcslro a settlement without a lawsuit.
The, resolution was introduced by Mr.
A proposition from the Standard Bridge
company offering, in view of the fact that
the site of tho old, pier at the Elk City
hrldgo could not be cleared to permit the
use of a new tubular pier, to construct a
cement pier without extra cost te the
county, was accepted. This disposes of
tho controversy between the company and
tho commissioner over tne method of re
pairing the bridge.
Tho commissioners accepted an Invttation
of the visiting committee of the Juvenile
court to attend the meeting to be held
Sunday afternoon at the Orrlghton College
of T.sw, at which Judge Mack of Chicago
will bo tho principal ppenKer.
The net regular meeting of the board
will not be held until Saturday. March 31.
